2010 LII Retaker Seeking Advice

Hi all - looking for advice/thoughts from LIII candidates that successfully retook LII (if they failed).

I took LII in 2010, failed Band 8 but couldn’t retake in 2011 and 2012 due to personal reasons.

I am now planning to take LII in 2013 and wanted to ask retakers how hard was it to dust off and pick up where they left off - if they had a gap in the years between retakes. I would appreciate any thoughts/insights.

I am pretty sure I have forgotten everything I studied in 2009 (LI) and 2010 (LII).


dude it is 17 days before the exam, come back after June 2
